i like the 8/13/75 big river quite a bit as well- definitely one of my favorites. and 5/9/77, which was also mentioned in this thread, is great too. but i think my favorite era for the tune is early '73- starting with a great version on 2/9/73. jerry's playing is particularly nimble around that time (see also: el paso from 2/9) and i love how he just percolates under bob's vocal the whole time. oh, and the strat seems like the right guitar for the job.
